This is one of the designs by The Patchsmith used for the Winter Olympics 2014 Mug Rug Swap, coordinated by Michelle from The Quilting Gallery website. I hope my swap partner loves it and enjoys using it.

looks very nice :-) i only wonder why americans call this doll babushka? It is Matreshka, and usualy this dolls have red cheecks and pretty dresses like young girls, and babushka is grandmother in russian.

Yes, I'm confused too, maybe because I'm Australian. I thought a babushka was the triangular-shaped head scarf I wore when I was a teenager. I've also seen this doll called a matryoshka, but thank you, Elena for your information.
